Described as a “modern-day Victor Borge,” the multi-talented Mitchell ZeidwiG is one of a kind. While Borge considered the safety of the piano bench his principle domain (give or take a few slips and slides) ZeidwiG tempts the gods by going the greater distance with his super-daredevil routines. The first half of the show will include musical comedy routines and stunts while the second half is a “serious” piano concert where the virtuoso ZeidwiG will play a program entitled Gershwin on Hendrix. This performance will surely leave you laughing and you will find yourself stunned by the beauty and grace demonstrated in ZeidwiG’s command of the keys.
